A Legacy of Success

University School of Milwaukee is proud to have a strong legacy family tradition, and we celebrated their continued connection with the school at a legacy family breakfast in November. Currently, there are 176 USM students who have a family legacy of attending USM, meaning one or more of their parents, grandparents, or great-grandparents attended the school or one of its predecessor schools.

“My father went to Milwaukee Country Day School and my wife’s father went to Milwaukee University School,” said Andy Read ’90, whose daughters Annie ’26 and Mimi ’28 are currently enrolled. “The sense of community at USM has really grown since I left. We always thought the girls would come here, it was just a matter of when.”

For Ethan Elser ’06, visiting USM as a parent rather than a student has taken some getting used to. His son, Ethan “EC” Elser Jr. ’32, started in prekindergarten this school year. “Walking up and down the same halls that I used to as a student, and seeing the same teachers that I had, is a little surreal,” he said. “But EC really likes being stimulated and engaged, and we’re enjoying it.”

The following are the USM legacy students for the 2017-18 school year.
